Loud - maybe ball bearings gone

Makes a lot of noise and won't tumble. Think bearings may be shot.

    my problem is am concerned that the noise from the machine isnt the bearings. is there a silencer built into machines and if not how can you tell if its bearings or glides?

    do ppl get fobbed off with this quite often, only my client is disabled and on low income. Would glides be infact cheaper but the engineer will make more money if he says it is bearings

How old is the machine?
There are glides that the drum turns on that may be bad rather than a bearing!
How old is the machine? if it's 9 years old or more.Do not put good money into bad!
A new machine will save you a lot of money on energy. Enough to pay for it self in only a few years!

Hoover Maxi 6 TC50 Tumble Dryer making squealing noise


Have you fixed this problem? I also have a Hoover condenser dryer, only a few months old, and has started to make a squeal/whistle. I'm thinking it might be the front fan needing some WD40, OR too much water vapour around the belt that moves the drum causing the sounds.

If it's the fan, lubricating the shaft and its components should fix the problem, if a wet fan then I'd think maybe fully cleaning the condenser filter, reservoir ect will fix the problem.

The problem seems to go away though "mostly" 15 or so minutes after you start the dryer, so that makes me think ones it gets warm something is expanding to allow more "give" so maybe the belt.

Dryer heats up but drum doesn't turn.


If the drum is very stiff to turn could be the drum bearings shot which would account for the broken belt, replace belt and it liable to break shortly after again. hover are known for there bad bearings and they cost a small fortune.

check it out have a look and see if there is nothing jaming the drum inside, i am certain your belt has gone and maybe down to the stiff drum making belt break, replace belt but bare in mind it may break again if the drum is too stiff.

choice is yours really. bearing kits cost more than 50 quid in general

Drum making sqeaky noise


The squeak is the rear bearing mount rubbing on the hanger ball. The plastic bearing is gone and that metal piece is cutting a groove into the ball mount. I have a picture. If the ball will be cut off and the drum will fall into the heating element and the belt will break. Not good!
8a3a785.jpgTo get to this bearing you must pop the top and get the belt loose,lift out the drum and inspect the bearing. The kit is fairly reasonable.This is something that a DIYer can easily handle.

Loud whinning noise then no picture or sound


Color wheel is the noise you are hearing. It can also keep the lamp from firing up if it has seized up. Remove the lamp and inspect it. Replace the color wheel for sure.

Our Neptune Maytag Washer is making a very loud noise during the spin clycle. I think It may be a bearing but its only a little over 4 years old. Have Maytag had a lot of problems with this kind of noise


Yes Maytag has had seal and bearing issues. Check your original warranty paperwork it still maybe covered?

Call the store where you bought it, they may cover it under warranty.

Did you buy an extended warranty?
